This is another park where the entrance fee may seem off putting since it is a park but the price is worth it. The water is dirty so do not swim but you can rent a boat and putter around in the large lake for hours. You can also visit a temple that is inside the park.

Love the parks around here. Near Jingshan park this is another place full of some great greenery and old beautiful buildings. Can't miss a walk here...

Hire a pushbike and explore the narrow Hutongs and Beihai Park. We chose an 11am start and it was quite busy with tour buses and locals. Beautiful park with easy access. Plenty of restaurants and tourist shops. The locals fish (sign says No Fishing), exercise, rest, and walk. Worth going to but I recommend a 6am start.

Very nice and easily walkable park just outside the forbidden city. You can enjoy just a walk alongside the shore, or one can hire a small pedal boat and enjoy the views form the lake. There is plenty of drinks and food stalls to get some snacks and get hydrated.

Lovely flowers. Nice walk through a park. From our perspective it is not worth to visit the temple in the middle as there is not much to see, there are other better temples (e.g. Lama Temple) in the city and you have to pay extra to get in.

lovely gardens and lakes, you can walk around at your leisure, you can take a paddle boat or a dragon boat, you can climb the White Dagoba and take in a great view of Beijing....but bring your walking shoes and know that there are stairs involved.

This lake is located just next to the Jingshan Park. You have to walk thru a Hutong, where there are a lot of shops selling local Muslim snacks. It is a nice park and not so huge that you cannot finish walking :D

Nice peaceful quiet park. Not a big name touristy place. Just about all the visitors are locals. Not a tour bus in sight! Worth visiting for up to half a day.

Definitely worth going here - lovely lake with divine walking path around it. Hire a boat and enjoy the peaceful serenity feeling. We spent 2 hours here - enough. Caught the underground to get there. Eating places on the island in middle of lake.
